About Ian Sharp

My first encounter with neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) came while working as a tutor at the Open University. My students were excited about a new study technique and, on investigation, so was I.

At this point, I’d been a tutor for 15 years and was experiencing stress. It turned out NLP and hypnosis could deal with that too. I was hooked.

In the mid-2000s I trained with Dr. Richard Bandler, Paul McKenna, Michael Neill, John LaValle and others to gain a suite of accreditations in neuro-linguistics and hypnosis (see below).

Now I’m a wellbeing professional – developing online learning, coaching and running hypnosis sessions, all with the aim of enabling you to live your best life.

We are all enough. We are never broken, yet sometimes we forget to use all of the amazing resources we already have on the inside. Coaching, hypnotherapy and learning are always delivered with the intention of reconnecting to our full potential.


We can all live remarkable lives and I want us never to settle for anything less. Stress, anxiety, overwhelm and depression can be problems we used to have. My vision is a society in which we all contribute in the best way we can.
